I love the pacific northwest, esp. around the Portland area in and around Mt. Hood, for the varied riding and terrain. You have the hot dry desert climate of the eastern cascades to the wetter softer pine needle covered trails in the western cascades to everything in between.

I would love to move back to the area some day. I could be closer to the mothership, too. ;)

I have not ridden up your way but would sure love too. I have a friend that goes to Whistler every year and he can't say enough good things about it.
I am pretty spoiled where I live, I can be on some great mountain bike rides in 60 seconds from my front porch.

Scott - fabulous photos and report! Thanks for sharing.

I have to figure out a way to transport my MTB in my RV-3 so I can quit relying on friends to drag it along for me.

Fantastic!
 
Thanks Scott! I know where my son and I are going next! Another excellent mountain bike ride is Gooseberry Mesa, just east of Hurricane, UT. We've ridden the trails there a couple of times. Beautiful views of Zion National Park! If you ever end up in the 'Vegas area, we'll take you to Bootleg Canyon to ride.

I have done Gooseberry a few times and love it. This ride is very similar, except it is faster and slightly downhill the whole time.
Have fun.
